The Queenslander (Brisbane, Qld. : 1866 – 1939), Exert from Saturday 16 March 1878, page 8 (National Library of Australia)
THE road via Waterford to Brisbane presents to us any day of the week numerous German conveyances, called waggons, four-wheeled, lightly constructed, and easy of draught,loaded with farm produce. It occurred to me that these producers would be bene- fited by railway communication to market, but I find that they prefer conveying their pro- duce themselves, and, after disposing of it, load- ing back with their purchases in town with little loss of time. Jimboomba station some ten years ago pro- duced some fine cattle, compared to the herds of that time : and the farmers who rear cattle now favor the Hereford breed as more suitable to thissandy soil. Maybe the station owner came to the same conclusion years back. Ringing timber on this country improves the grass wonderfully; a totally different and superior description of herbage grows where the timber is killed. There is a piece of road between the Logan Village, that bears the traffic of the Upper Logan, and has done so for years, in a most deplorably bad state, and not even a tree removed, although there are fences on both sides for most part of the way. The Penny Readings at Logan Village are I believe suspended, for what cause I am not aware. This to be regretted, as they afforded some recreation. No want of rain, and therefore an unlimited quantity of grass.
